With only one game remaining before the end of the year, Sekhukhune United Football Club will return to action this weekend after two months break due to the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
Babina Noko will be back at home for the DSTV Premiership action this Saturday evening, 31December 2022. They will be welcoming AmaZulu FC at The New Peter Mokaba Stadium in Polokwane. Kick-off for this encounter will be at 17h30.
The boys together with the new signings will be looking to impress the New Head Coach Mr. Brandon Truter who will be up against his former team and will be hoping for a change in fortune to finish the season on a high.
The last DStv Premiership fixture for Babina Noko was against TS Galaxy on the 31st of October 2022 at Mbombela Stadium, Mbombela. Babina Noko came back with a point from that encounter.
With five DSTV league games at home under their belt, Babina Noko has accumulated eight points, with a win against Golden Arrows & Orlando Pirates, a draw against Mamelodi Sundowns & Stellenbosch FC, and a solitary loss against Royal AM FC respectively.
It will be the third competitive encounter between the two teams, with the last encounter on the 6th of May 2022 at Moses Mabhida, Durban where they played out to a goalless stalemate. Babina Noko managed to get four points from Usuthu.
The last time Babina Noko managed to collect maximum points this season was on the 4th of October 2022 against Orlando Pirates FC. Six points separate the two teams in the DStv Premiership league Log standings. The away team is sitting in the 7th position with 17 points from 13 matches while Babina Noko is in the 15th position with 11 points from 12 games.
The question is, will the FIFA Break help Babina Noko to turn the table around?
